    This is an issue in our house because many weight loss plans call for seafood…but my husband is so allergic that if he even smells it cooking he starts to black out and can’t breathe. 😦

    Wow, I feel sorry for your husband! I can’t imagine being that alleergic to something.

    Since you can’t eat seafood, I’ve got another recipe I’ll post later this week just for you!

    I bet you could replace the shrimp with chicken or tofu and the recipe would still be delicious.
